A. To provide a center for contemporary art.
B. To recognize and serve a vital community artistic presence which is global in its outlook, challenging in its ideas, pluralistic in its concerns, and diverse in its expression. Hallwalls' twofold mission is to serve artists by supporting the creation and presentation of new work in the visual, media, performing, and literary arts, and to serve the public by making these works available to audiences. We are dedicated in particular to work by artists which challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of the various art forms, and which is critically engaged with current issues in the arts and--through the arts--in society
Directions: Free parking for Hallwalls events is usually available in our adjacent lot. Note that we share this lot with Babeville, and there may be occasions on which another event in the building would cause the lot to be full or otherwise unavailable. In this case, it is often possible to find street parking on Delaware Avenue south of Tupper, or on South Elmwood Avenue.
Entrance to Hallwalls is through the glass stair tower addition on the south façade of the rear Parish House. This entrance is fully wheelchair accessible, with a new passenger elevator located just inside the lobby. All Hallwalls facilities and adjacent restrooms are accessible, and assistive listening devices are available by request.
